SEASON 1:

Booooorrrrrnnnnn Frrrrreeeee, the 1974 a series based on the film; it lasted half a standard season.

If you want scoring with the John Barry film theme and plenty of African percussion, this should be for you.



"Pilot"
By: Dick DeBenedictis
https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6gh4b4

Highlights:
  • 0:58 in.
  • 5:50 in. And the somber statement of Barry's theme that follows after the commercial break.
  • 7:21 in.
  • 14:45 in.
  • 21:12 in.
  • 22:41 in. And the cue after the commercial break.
  • 24:10 in.
  • 26:34 in.
  • 29:10 in.
  • 30:22 in. Three minutes of African percussion drama.
  • 37:06 in.
  • 40:07/44:24 in.



    "Elephant Trouble"
    By: Richard Shores
    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6gh5ex

    Highlights:
  • 1:55 in.
  • 4:15 in.
  • 6:21 in.
  • 10:20 in.
  • 19:40 in.
  • 22:10 in.
  • 24:11 in. And the cue after the commercial break.
  • 28:18 in.
  • 31:52 in.
  • 36:00 in.
  • 38:20 in. Almost six minutes long (sounds like it was faded out a little early).
  • 44:39 in.

    Out-of-context quotes...
    "No one can ever know enough about the bush."

    "You're big enough to run around in the bush, you're big enough to stand a little pain."



    "A Matter of Survival"
    By: Harry Sukman
    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6gh73e

    This is the only effort by Sukman for the series.

    Highlights:
  • 0:57 in.
  • 6:16 in. Music to fly by.
  • 8:53 in.
  • 10:10 in.
  • 14:28 in.
  • About 18:30 in.
  • 23:28 in.
  • 25:50 in.
  • 27:47 in.
  • 29:05 in.
  • 31:50 in.
  • 35:37 in.
  • About 36:15 in.
  • About 40:30 in.
  • 43:30 in.
  • 45:37 in.

    Watching this episode reminds me of that rain forest episode of "South Park"...



    "Death of a Hunter"
    By: Richard Shores
    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6gjr8p

    Highlights:
  • 0:57 in. Including some Africa-flavored car chase music, but no car chase -- just tailing. Over three minutes long.
  • 8:41 in.
  • 11:00 in.
  • 12:44 in.
  • 14:46 in. Over four minutes long.
  • 19:28 in.
  • 23:46 in. And the soft cue after the commercial break (mixed low), followed by some drama.
  • 29:30 in.
  • 32:30 in. Three and-a-half minutes long.
  • 37:02 in. Almost five minutes long. And the cue after the commercial break (beginning with some soft funeral music, then leading to some tense music; over four minutes long).

    For the over all enjoyability, catchy pieces, and drama, this episode score should have at least gotten an Emmy nomination. Nothing on this series was nominated for anything.

    I may have cited every cue, so I might as well say the complete score should be released.




    "Africa's Child"
    By: Dick DeBenedictis
    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6gjp9k

    Highlights:
  • 1:55 in.
  • 8:28 in.
  • 10:51 in.
  • 14:22 in.
  • 16:00 in.
  • 18:21 in.
  • 22:10 in. Almost three minutes long.
  • About 28:10 in. And the cue after the commercial break.
  • 38:26 in.
  • 41:25 in.
  • 44:16 in.




    "The Masai Rebels"
    By: Richard Shores
    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6gjsyn

    Highlights:
  • 4:35 in.
  • 6:13 in.*
  • 8:49 in.
  • 10:12 in.
  • 12:48/16:05/19:04 in. The third one is nearly five minutes long.
  • 24:27 in.
  • 26:50 in.
  • 33:33 in. Over eight minutes long.
  • 45:00 in.

    * = CinemaSins voice "Tommy, how's the peepin'?"



    "The Flying Doctor of Kenya"
    By: Richard Shores
    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6gllc4

    Highlights:

    Neat! I like these varied composers and Barry’s original score, so I think I’d probably buy a 2-disc set of highlights from this series’ scoring. A bigger/more expensive set might be pushing it for such a short lived series with no “big name” composers like Goldsmith, Herrmann, or Jarre...

    I didn't like the series (what I remember of it), but a CD would be worth hearing just to find out what Richard Shores "...Africa-flavored car chase music..." sounds like.

    I'd buy pretty much anything by Shores smile

    Not bad and recognisably Shores, but not particularly memorable compared to earlier stuff of his that's been released. I only watched a few minutes. The credits with Collins and Muldaur (I'd forgotten she was in it!) and the 'syruppy' looks at the camera reminded me why I never liked the show wink

    Another Shores fan, here, his "Hawaii Five-O" scores being personal favorites, especially "Forty Feet High and It Kills" (S2), "3,000 Crooked Miles to Honolulu, "Wednesday, Ladies Free" (S4), "Draw Me a Killer," Anybody Can Build a Bomb" (S6), "We Hang Our Own" (S7, his final score for the series).

    An aside: Talked with him once (February 1986, via phone). Was a great admirer of John Barry's score for "Out of Africa" and Bruce Broughton's music for "The Blue and the Gray."

    Agree wholeheartedly with all the above. His score for the TV movie BILLION DOLLAR THREAT (Dale Robinette as a sort of cut-price James Bond) was a favourite of mine, harking back to his days on UNCLE. Haven't heard it in years though...

    If I don't see some kind of update on "Hawaii 5-0" from Roger, I'll end up tackling it this year. But I'd hate to be in the midst of it and suddenly the release is possible.

    Believe me, I'd love to make suites of music for people to hear, but I have about 100 MB storage space and I can't do it.

    If I don't see some kind of update on "Hawaii 5-0" from Roger, I'll end up tackling it this year. But I'd hate to be in the midst of it and suddenly the release is possible.


    The only thing I can ever remember that was said in reference to '5-0' was concerning Bruce Broughton's scores for the series, rather than any hint of a wider release. I presume there are still legal issues with CBS surrounding Morton Stevens music.

    To me personally, the core of 5-0 music was Stevens, Shores and Don B. Ray. Broughton, nowhere near so much I'm afraid.

    With twelve seasons of shows from which to select scores there's certainly an embarrassment of musical riches where 5-0 is concerned (Mort Stevens being the composer on about sixty episodes). Still, I would expect to see these titles in any such collection of these scores:

    Cocoon (pilot score)
    Full Fathom Five (first episode of the series to be broadcast)
    Samurai (first episode of the series produced)
    Tiger by the Tail
    A Thousand Pardons, You're Dead! (S2 premiere)
    Trouble in Mind (with Mort's infamous dying scene!)
    Over Fifty? Steal
    Highest Castle, Deepest Grave (S4 premiere)
    Hookman (S6 premiere)
    How to Steal a Masterpiece
    Murder: Eyes Only (two-hour S8 premiere)
    Turkey Shoot at Makapuu (very "Police Woman" like)
    Nine Dragons (two-hour S9 premiere)
    The Bells Toll at Noon (solo clarinet, strings, one of my favorite scores...from any drama series)
    A Lion in the Streets (S12 premiere)*
    Woe to Wo Fat

    * - seem to remember this being a two-hour premiere as well.

    All great, worthy of any 5-O collection...and all composed by Mort Stevens (but what an amazing ten-disk set this would make!)

    As you can see, I listed "Hookman" twice...that's just how good it is!

    In 1974 the three Emmy nominees for series music composition came from this show (Mort winning for the aforementioned "Hookman"). It's astounding to me that the series' music was never again nominated, especially with such great scores composed in subsequent seasons as The Bells Toll at Noon, Nine Dragons and A Lion in the Streets (Mort), McGarrett is Missing, Heads, You're Dead, Elegy in a Rain Forest , Though the Heavens Fall (Bruce Broughton), We Hang Our Own (Shores), I'll Kill 'Em Again (Geller), The Skyline Killer (Dick DeBenedictis). Travesty.

    Yep, I agree. I always thought that NINE DRAGONS should have, at the very least, been nominated for an Emmy - a truly wonderful Five-O score, which had it all and done in that perfect Mort Stevens style. Yes, HOOKMAN - a Stevens Magnum Opus:-)

    MA: I caught "Lion in the Streets" on TBS one afternoon (contrary to what imdB has, I'm pretty sure it was a two-hour episode). I have to say, though, that "The Bells Toll at Noon" absolutely floored me (as far removed stylistically from "Hookman" as you can get). I came away from watching that show thinking 'how could this not have received an Emmy nom?!' As for the show itself, I thought Rich Little, in a rare dramatic role, was very effective.

    I got to look at some of Mort's scores while doing research at UCLA on "Gilligan's Island" music. Beautiful handwriting, major notations/timing info in magic marker (so clean you could "eat off his scores") and, speaking as a music arranger, just a pleasure to view. Also looked at his arrangement of the "Cimarron Strip" MT wondering how many violins he had as the end pitch is a high, as in very high, sustained "D" (he had twelve, the minimum number I would have on a single pitch in that range).

    Interestingly, had lunch with him once. Do you know what we talked about most of the time? John Williams, mostly because of his (Mort's) arranging work with JW and the Pops. I remember he hadn't seen "Space Camp" and wondered what the score was like. He also told me the story of Maurice Jarre playing the "Cimarron Strip" theme for him on his office piano (as a one finger melody!)

    For a musician, truly a brush with not only greatness, but, I believe, genius.
